Axon Announces Partnership with Milestone Systems

Evidence.com expands beyond body camera video to include all devices in a Milestone installation


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 6, 2018
- Axon (Nasdaq: AAXN), the global leader in connected law enforcement technologies, today announced a strategic partnership with Milestone Systems, a world-leading open platform IP video management software provider. Today, law enforcement agencies receive data from a multitude of digital video providers, which they then need to analyze and store across various platforms. The Axon and Milestone partnership allows agencies to ingest all that digital data, including data captured on non-Axon devices, into Evidence.com, providing one integrated solution for an efficient, unified workflow.

With the Axon Network, customers can securely and efficiently analyze photo and video footage captured on the Axon Capture smartphone app, body-worn, in-car and interview room cameras. The partnership with Milestone brings data from more than 6,000 models of cameras from 150 manufacturers, including CCTV footage, into that Axon ecosystem allowing for a combined holistic review of all evidence. The Milestone data is ingested into the Axon Network so customers can apply the same tools to all camera footage for the combined video evidence. This provides the ability to view and analyze video footage, redact in one single tool and quickly share case files with prosecutors.

“We're excited to partner with Axon as an early adopter of our new video streaming interface,” says Brad Eck, Strategic Alliances Program Owner, Milestone Systems Americas. “This partnership will deliver great value to our joint customers by giving them a unified overview of digital evidence and evidence handling. This illustrates the value of the open platform community to join forces for improving safety and security.”

“This partnership with Milestone will provide an invaluable service to our customers as it helps streamline the entire evidence analysis process,” says Axon CEO and founder Rick Smith. “Milestone is a market leader in the video management software space. Law enforcement agencies will have the ability to ingest data from many more sources into the Axon Network, accelerating the capture-to-courtroom workflow.”
